Running Start Family Night (May 3, 6-7 p.m.)

Parents and prospective students are invited to join us on Zoom for Running Start Family Night to learn how high school juniors and seniors can take tuition-free classes at Edmonds College.

Get your questions answered by Running Start Program Director Nell Colyn, a former Edmonds College Running Start student herself.

Running Start is for all juniors and seniors. You can participate regardless of your English placement, GPA, or whether you plan to continue your education or enter the workforce after high school. Enroll in the program, and Edmonds College staff will help you find classes that are a good match for you. No one is turned away.
